The first advisory didn't even want to intensify Simon to a hurricane.

Looks almost 6.5 worthy. Appearance tells me this is 120-125. However, I refuse to believe this is higher than 115.

Unless the ADT goes higher I doubt they would go above 115. If the ADT ticks up to 6.2 or 6.3 then maybe 120 kt.

This Epac season is truly "off the chain" as they say :eek: . Its CDO with that tiny eye is unique.

HURRICANE SIMON DISCUSSION NUMBER 14
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP192014
800 PM PDT SAT OCT 04 2014

After the NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft left Simon earlier today,
satellite images revealed that the eye became quite distinct and
surrounded by very deep convection. Dvorak subjective and
objective numbers from TAFB, SAB and UW-CIMSS jumped to T6.0 on
the Dvorak scale. Based on this data, the initial intensity was
adjusted upward to 115 kt. This makes Simon the 6th Category Four
Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale this season.

Simon reached 115 kt just before entering a region of cool waters,
and as we speak, a portion of the circulation is already doing so.
Most of the global models increase the shear as the cyclone moves
northward toward the mid-latitude westerlies. Based on these two
factors, the NHC forecast calls for significant weakening during the
next few days. In fact, if Simon reaches Baja California, it is
likely to be a weak tropical storm or a tropical depression.

Simon is already turning and is now moving toward the northwest or
315 degrees at 9 kt. The ridge that has been steering Simon is
forecast to weaken and shift southward. This pattern will move Simon
northward until the cyclone encounters the mid-latitude westerlies,
and a recurvature toward Baja California will then begin in 48
hours. One large uncertainty is how fast Simon will move after
recurvature. The GFS and the ECMWF are now in better agreement in
accelerating the cyclone, but many of the other models are not quite
so fast. The NHC forecast is not as fast as the GFS/ECMWF pair at
this time, but I would not be surprised if a faster motion has to be
indicated in the next forecast.

The trend of models suggests that moisture from Simon could bring
another heavy rain event to the southwestern United States in a
few days.

Wow, and it just barely made it to Category 4! The season is looking to set records. When last was our "S" storm so intense?

The EPAC has had more Cat 4+ storms in 2014 than the Atlantic has had total tropical cyclones (including depressions)...

Sergio 1982. It peaked at 110 knots, very close to category 4 threshold.

Can this season get any more interesting? :eek:

It's like watching 2004 or 2005 in the Atlantic, with less landfalling systems of course but just as interesting. Intensity forecast has been a headache for the NHC, they will surely learn some lessons from this season.

ASTONISHING number.. 6 tropical cyclones in the ATL, 7 category 4 hurricanes in the EPAC and possibly 6 super typhoons in the WPAC if Vongfong verifies

Man, and the Kelvin/MJO wave isn't even here yet (just wait a week). When good conditions wants a storm, it's going to get a storm! simon has propelled the EPAC seasonal ACE to good company all of which are during the active era. Could jump 1991 soon. I bet Simon isn't the last cat 4 this year here.

The EPAC has had 9 storms stronger than any ATL storm since 2011.
